in which I celebrate Pat, Mad Housewife wine, and roses

This afternoon I teased Pat Padley because he was excited to appear in a blog post today. I told him that he appeared in my blog months ago, and nary a peep from him. Here’s the picture:

I asked these goobers to pose for me, and this is what I got

He claims that I called him a goober and that doesn’t count, so here’s another one — one of my favorites from the CNMC MMX. Pat and Steve were having too much fun:

So there, Pat. Now you just have to find someone else to post your mug, and you’ll have a hat trick 🙂

In other news, I picked up a bottle of Mad Housewife Cabernet Sauvignon the other day. I totally did it because of the name and a timely visit by my mother-in-law. It was supposed to be funny…ok. Whatever.

Anyway, a sudden storm and frankly, a lack of interest in anything other than fooling around on Twitter led me to popping the cork. Oh! It’s actually pretty good. I paid about $9 for this bottle, and it’s just fine, thankyouverymuch.

too hilarious
the cork says "dishes can wait! dinner be damned!"

So the wine is pretty good, for a cheap wine (defined by Rachel Balducci as anything under 10 bucks, but not quite the 2-buck-chuck that seemed to appall the distinguished Sarah Vabulas). CatholicDrinkie should take notice: it’s not a bad little table wine.

So here’s to the ladies and gentlemen (and Jerry) who drink virtually with me on Twitter. A toast to getting together in real life and clinking the glasses!


And finally, the rose explosion continues in the back yard — there are tons of little buds celebrating their own little porch party this fall, and so I’ll take advantage of the title of the post and present this to another Pat, who often makes me smile, kind of like the rose explosion.

  1. When you started talking about Mad Housewife wine, I thought you were joking, but no! There really is a brand called Mad Housewife Wine! You learn something new every day. 🙂

  2. I guess I owe you a cameo on my blog now. I like how I’m mentioned in a post about mad house wife wine and roses. Are you trying to tell me something subliminally?

  3. I’ll have you know that you misinterpreted my humor. I know that good wine doesn’t have to be expensive. And I have no issues with Two Buck Chuck!

    1. no worries, I think got it right. ;). we should do a cheap wine tasting. like, really cheap. I’ll bring the mountain dew.

Hi! Wanna say something? Go ahead. Be nice.
